Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. We are very excited to begin Key Stage One and are looking forward to further developing our learning through a range of exciting opportunities throughout the year. Mrs Cruse is our teacher, and we are also lucky enough to have Mrs Walker and Mrs Lewington working with us in our class!

 Term 2

I am so proud of year 1.  They have worked so hard this term both with our class work and in their own learning.  Although we haven’t had our usual Christmas traditions this year, it has still been a lovely term full of special activities.

We went on a Nativity Walk around the grounds.  We rode our donkeys to Bethlehem and then went in search of the shepherds and wise men.  After all of our travelling we went back to class for a hot chocolate.

In English our class had a new visitor – ‘Naughty Bus’ who caused a few messes but also resulted in lots of writing.  We’ve also learnt all of the phase 5 sounds and will move on to the alternative pronunciations next.

In maths we’ve been looking at addition, subtraction and numbers to 20.

We’ve also made lots and lots of Christmas decorations and cards, with many Angels!  The children made a clay tree decoration which they were very proud of.

The children have worked so hard and made so much progress.  Well done Year 1!

Term 1

What a busy term we have had in Term 1!  The children have settled in well and were really excited to be with all of their friends again.  They are getting used to their new class and learning about all of the things we have for them to use.

We have recapped our Phonics and will be starting Phase 5 next term.

In English the children have learnt Rosie’s walk and written their own stories about the fox in the story.

Maths has been all about numbers to 10 and the introduction of the symbols <,>,+,=.  The children have really enjoyed our work on Part Part Whole!

We have been very lucky to have Outdoor Learning this term and the children particularly enjoyed having a fire one week.
